((I haven’t made an original history post in a while. And that’s making me sad, like I want to make a post on something but I have no idea what. I know I do want to make one on the French Azilum. Do you guys have anything in PA history or anything about PA that you wanted to know more about? ))
((OMG I never seen like a live possum. I always seen them things dead. Mostly on the train tracks my dad used to take me on as a kid. But yeah I’d probably die if I saw one alive XD
Oh and if you’re up to hunting Canadian Geese. But like they’re mostly near the river, and I think that;s actually illegal to harm them XD))
((you’re more than welcome too, yeah!))
((Or raccoons, don’t forget them! My neighborhood got a bunch of them assholes. Mostly because of the abandon houses, they love living in those. XD
But yeah a day off would be lovely :c ))
wow look at this
does it say anything about caucasian people not being a race?
because im p sure caucasian is a race! who knew. apparently caucasians aren’t a race and can’t be discriminated against
all the dictionaries gotta be rewritten
put a little star there saying ‘* you cant be caucasian because caucasian people can’t be discriminated against’
you are implying that people of colour - who are only different to caucasians because of different skeletal structure and skin colour, NOT MENTALLY, MEANING THAT THEY ARE STILL HUMAN AND CAN IN FACT SAY RACIST THINGS TOWARDS CAUCASIAN PEOPLE - every single one of them, don’t EVER say something discriminating against caucasians. wow. that’s QUITE a generality.
news flash! wow, thank you anon! now i know that because I’M WHITE I’m not part of a race therefore i am not a HUMAN.
whew. i learnt something today.
white people can experience discrimination but the effects of said discrimination are nothing compared to the actual systematic opression of pocs
Well, ok, I’m gonna be the prick here. Or not a prick, depending upon your opinion. There are lots of different races inside of being white. Like, russian, irish, polish, jewish (sorta, that’s a bit more confusing), gypsy (i believe this counts, as well??) etc. unless those don’t count as races (correct me if i’m wrong here), they can consist of white people, as well. so, yes, there is racism for white people. and, plot twist, it CAN be as bad as POC racism. Like, hello, holocaust. as well as that, there is A LOT of Irish racism (altho i cannot remember the exact name of what occurred, sorry. long day.) But yeah. It /can/ be as bad a POC racism. Maybe the oppression was worse in the past, yes, perhaps, but the racism can be really bad depending on who you’re around and where you live.
Racism is judging someone on the basis of their skin color/heritage. Ok? That’s it. There are no exceptions to this. Simple.
aand it’s fucking obvious that tumblr user idonotlikethatsam-i-am is white and a huge ass idiot. AND RACIST.
Don’t get me wrong, yes, there’s racism against white people- I’ve seen enough “white girls” jokes (which are also misoginistic) that might help as proof. But are you fucking serious.
Now 1) You didn’t citate races you fuck. Those are fucking nationalities- yes there are some physical traits that are standar to each country, but for fuck’s sake, they are all white.
2) White people suffering ‘cause THE HOLOSCAUST? Yeah I’m sure there was no fucking racism back then you shit. I’m sure aaaaallll of the people on the concentration camps were white.
Yeah haha the past was super bad yah but now racism agains white people can be as bad as POC racisM AER YOU FUCKING SERIOUS.
FUCK YOUR IGNORANT BUTT WITH A FUCKING CACTUS.
Even if in the Holocaus they were all white, and sorry I am not trying to compare, really- you’re seriously saying that the millions and millions of african people murdered, killed, trafficked and sent to slavery to die in misery through all fucking history waaay before WWII- you’re saying that’s the same??
YOu’re saying it can be as bad- when black people NOWADAYS still struggle in the job market because during an interview in which the other one plying for the job is white there’s alwasy a higher chance for that one to get hired??
How many shows/movies are with black people as leads, and not just the white protagonist’s cool bff? and how many about white people are again? Oh?
That people still think a black dude in a hoodie must be a criminal, but say nothing about the white boy wearing the same thing?
THAT JUST NOT SO LONG AGO A DUDE WHO SAVED MONEY AND WENT TO BUY HIMSELF A PRETY BELT ON A NICE PLACE GOT DETAINED BECAUSE THEY THOUGHT HE STOLE IT— BECAUSE HE WAS BLACK??
THAT THIS FUCKING YEAR A 17-YEAR-OLD AFRICAN AMERICAN BOY GOT KILLED BY A CELEBRITY AND NO CHARGES WERE ACTUALLY SERVED UNTIL HE ATTEMPTS TO HARM A WHITE WOMAN?????
THAT THERE’S STILL VIOLENCE, ABUSE, DISCRIMNATION, BULLYING IN FUCKING SCHOOLS AGAINST CHILDREN FOR BEING BLACK.
JUST AS BAD AS BLACK PEOPLE? NOW SHUT THE FUCK UP
Don’t you try victimize white people by saying BUT WE’RE BEING DISCRIMINATED TOO. It’s like saying “Yes I stole your candy but he did too sooo”, it’s fucking stupid.
I’m not saying all white people are bad. I’m not saying there is no discrimination against white people (there probably is, maybe, I haven’t seen any drastic form yet, aside them jokes- honestly, there are more post of people whining about “yes racism against white people exist!!11! stop being racist against white people!!!1!” than actual racism).
But listen the FUCK up
When it affects your life safety or the safety of your family
when it affects your job safety
when it affects your safety in your own cominity, your own school,
when it affects your own view about yourself
THEN, you fucking come and say racism agains white people is as bad as POC racism.
White people are fucking priviledged, subconciously or not, and a few sparks of racism growing lately WILL NOT compare, not even in the FUCKING LEAST, to a WHOLE HISTORY (and still going) of racism against POC.
Shut the fuck up.
People. People. Calm down and listen.
Just get a grip on everything you’re saying right now about this problem of racism we created over the years by the blood on our hands. Racism may seem to be seeped in our veins after generations of human prejudice against the shades of our skin and our variety of colors, but we have been using the true “race” wrong. Wrong to the point that 90 percent of the people who take their time to read this would not know what “race” really means.
Because I just want you to know that, in the human species, separate races does not exist.
Race, in its pure biological definition not corrupted by media’s standards, means “A population of interbreeding species that develops distinct characteristics differing from other populations of the same species, especially as caused by geographical isolation.” In other words, race is a “sub-species” of another species that has formed over the years of genetic mutations. Darwin used “race” in On the Origin of Species describing his finches, because they were literally separate species after years of isolation on the Galapagos Islands.
Do you hear someone calling each other “sub-species?” No. Humans doesn’t have a single sub-speices without the added mutation. Only until people start to get point ears of an elf or powers like X-Men should you even consider a human sub-species. A species that has an actual categorizes of sub-species are orangutans, where these primates have distinct features and territorial isolation in Africa, and hardly does one sub-species ever cross with another (which humans, spreading across the globe, honestly has very little chance of branching in sub-species).
While, yes, you may look at the person next to you or the picture of a funny gif under this post and think you’re completely different than said person, humans are biologically very very very similar. We are probably the least diverse of a species on this entire planet. Two fruits flies are ten times more genetic different than any human compared to a chimpanzee.
Want to know something else to? Because our “social inequality” we had used because of the pigment of our skin, there are even more mutations within a certain skin color group than another. You know what that also means as well?
I, a white girl, am genetically closer to my African-American friend than the majority of caucasians I will meet in my lifetime.
So please. Can we just end this horrible misconception of “different human races” and give the word “race” a chance to return to its original roots? Can we just all go around can not categorize ourselves in prejudice labels, but simply “human?” Stop with this social degrading people, namely Americans, have merge within our cultures?

Here an article by someone who understand this topic in much better detail this college student absorbed from her Anthropology class ever could, so take a few extra minutes to read the article given: http://www.academia.edu/218217/Biological_and_Social_Definitions_of_Race_Implications_for_Modern_Biomedical_Research
((You really didn’t make a point here, nor are you contributing anything to the current debate at hand.
Saying that race doesn’t exist is just as bad as saying you are colorblind and don’t see it at all. That’s erasing who we are as people and what our cultures are and that’s pretty disrespectful if you ask me.
It’s easy for someone to say something like that. That race isn’t real and shit. but you don’t have to live through the racism everyday and being disadvantaged due to our whack society. You don’t have to be told by your parents to work extra hard because you are both black and a woman. So yeah it maybe easier for you to say that it isn’t real, but it’s much harder for me and other poc to say that. So please, think before say things like that. It does more harm than good.))
Finally got some food. Happy thanksgiving!
((I had a nice thanksgiving))
((Chicago “pizza” is overrated. Cheesesteak is a lifestyle not to be messed with.))
((Cheesesteaks are serious business, anon. We don’t play.))
I like cheese whiz AND ketchup on my cheesesteaks. What does that say about me? Lol.
((You think you know a person, then you find out what they like on their cheesesteak. This changes everything.))
Oh god can you stand another reply from me about this? Cheese steaks — chipped steak, provolone cheese, salt & pepper, Amoroso roll. That’s it.
((No it’s fine! This is a topic I care deeply about, It’s in my blood to care about it. But yes you hit the nail on the head. The simplicity of it, is what makes it good. Not all that extra stuff…just…people are killin’ me here.))
we also put mozzarella cheese on it instead of the fake cheese
((I-is this turning into a pizza now? A pizza on a hoagie roll? I don’t like cheese wiz on cheesesteaks, that’s pretty nasty. Good ol’ American Cheese on it is good. Not the yellow but the white, that’s the best.))
wurwolf replied to your post “wurwolf replied to your post: Allentown is known for a… Lancaster is…”
The further away from the city you are the worse it gets. Ever have a “Philly cheese steak” outside of PA/NJ/NY/DE? The worst I had was one in Florida, where the “steak” was actually just hamburger and the “roll” was a hot dog bun.
((I’m crying tears of blood now. That is…I don’t even know what to say about that cheesesteak. Just…I’m so sorry you had to deal with that :c These horror stories are making me feel soo uncomfortable. omg.))
Lancaster is not much better — you ask for a cheese steak and you will get tomato sauce (but at least it’s not ketchup). No one can do a cheese steak like Philly. NO ONE.
((Then it must be a good reason why I never trusted cheesesteaks outside of the city. I just…I can’t begin to fathom tomato sauce/ketchup on a cheesesteak like….how? The only other thing I ever had on a cheesesteak was mayo, and that’s totally normal. But like..I need to stop thinking about this. And you’re right, it’s just not the same. I doubt they use the same rolls either.))
Allentown is known for a slightly altered version of the Philly cheesesteak. The chipped beef, cheese, and roll are similar, but it is usually topped with a special "steak sandwich sauce", which will be some form of tomato sauce, especially ketchup.
((Tomato sauce…KETChup!? What the fuck is wrong with allentown? I think I’m gonna be sick, like that literally made my stomach turn.))
((A bit of everything really. I love their baked goods, especially the cream cheese pretzels. I love the hoagies a lot; but I also love the mac and cheese. On the seasonal level I love their pumpkin muffins ;W; ))
